After removing the negative, let it sit for 15-20 minutes.
Remove the bolt cover under the steering wheel, remove the 2 x10mm nut.
You should have the bag in hand, two connector to remove, one yellow and one orange, pop the little black piece with a flat screwdriver, unplug both terminal.
Their just one big nut, I think 17mm or 19mm in the center of the hole left by the airbag, remove it and you are done. Reinstall in reverse order.
Don't worry about aitbag, it need electrical power to deploy, if you're battery is disconnect, don't woory
Feel free to ask more if needed, great to help
